    [WARNING: As always, if you're concerned about a potential impact on JB, do NOT upgrade until more is known about today's release]

    On Monday, Apple released the first beta of iOS 7.1, which gives us an initial look into Apple's anticipated looming update for its mobile operating system.

    The beta comes just days after the release of iOS 7.0.4.

    In addition to an array of bug fixes, iOS 7.1 points to a number of known issues. They include:


    • Bluetooth (Known Issue) 32-bit apps running on a 64-bit device cannot attach to BTServer.
    • iTunes (Known Issue) Loading an iTunes Match library (or your purchased music history) may take much longer than expected, especially on larger libraries. If your library does not sync right away, please wait 30 minutes and try to access it again.
    • Crash Logs (Known Issue) Crash logs will not appear in Diagnostics & Usage Data in Settings. The logs will still be available when synced off the device.


    iOS 7.1 beta is available now for developers using all compatible iOS devices.

    I hope the devs stay quiet about the 7.1 update until it's released, too. We don't need apple patching security bugs just yet.

    Aren't x.1 updates supposed to come with at least a couple minor feature additions? Heck, even 7.0.3 came with iCloud Keychain. It seems like this should be 7.0.5 to me, unless they're holding off on the feature part of the update in the first beta for some reason.

    I think the J.B. hackers know what they do.
    Can just imagine what you can do with jailbroken iPhone 5s????

    This is why my iPhone is still on 6.1.2! But I do like the ipad mini on ios 7. Nonetheless, I can't wait for the JB so I can update the iPhone.

    No, the versioning system in all reality is not something for the consumer. While some companies treat it that way at times, they still need to maintain internal integrity. It's likely that the reason this is a .1 update is because it touched the BT stack which is a very important piece and at the same time the baseband radio was updated. Those two major pieces of software needed for the phone to operate.

    I must admit that this was a poor choice on Apple's part even though I never used it. It seemed like a lot of people did who actually cared about social media. But there have been, I believe, 2 tweaks as of late that have actually made me kind of want a JailBreak again. However. I'm fine with my 7.0.4 on my 5S and will wait however long it takes for it to launch and will wait a week longer as to not hit the traffic or first round glitches. A JailBreak is no longer that necessary to me in any way so I will wait until as many bugs are squashed as possible.

    It's there, but more than likely he doesn't get that for free (or is on a prepaid brand, carrier or MVNO that doesn't allow tethering officially, such as Straight Talk).
